Science (6-12)

The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not “ Eureka ! (I found it!)” but rather, "hmm.... that's funny...."
Isaac Asimov

The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.
Alvin Toffler

Kathy Owings - Instructional Specialist

It is the goal of the Mathematics and Science departments of Deer Park ISD to instill in all students the knowledge and skills enumerated by the state of Texas in the TEKS. In order to achieve this goal, teachers and students will engage in both concrete and abstract learning activities and will apply mathematical and scientific topics in the context of real-world situations. Of equal importance is ensuring that all students become life-long learners, a necessity for success in the 21 st Century. For our children, learning to speak the language of mathematics and science with confidence is now as fundamental as learning to read.
